    I found a place in Austin selling a 4 pack for 10.49 yesterday. I couldn't bring myself to tell them they are grossly under pricing these.

    Did they make their own carriers? I am pretty sure there is no 4 pack carrier for these. It's just a case of singles if I remember correctly.

    For that price, buy me one! :D lol

    Costco N. Austin had a bunch of cases of 120 in the liquor store there today. $9.99 though, so no real savings

    I'll be honest, I am in Texas and pretty much only care about Texas beer news, but the overwhelming feel of the SW forums being Texas only is annoying. I would not mind slightly if there were more threads about the other states.

    NV isnt part of this forum, but I agree that NM and AZ are pretty darn quiet, and even OK barely pokes its head in, although theres been a bit more of that lately. I wish I knew more about what's going on around y'all

    Wait, this isn't the Texas forum? ;)

    I was up in Bee Caves, TX tonight going out to dinner and my lady was nice enough to stop at both Spec's and HEB with me (we needed liquor and grocery items for a party tomorrow we're putting on) and both have 120 Minute IPA on the shelves.

    Shell Station in Friendswood had a case of 120 for sale.

    I drank one fresh, thanks to another BA, and it was too sweet for me. I'm gonna have to buy another one and let it age and mellow a bit.

    WFM Downtown Austin had a buttload of 120 on Thursday. Apparently on the East Coast, this stuff gets lines of people buying it, so my dad bought a 6-pack to bring back with him to Florida.

    It's sweet fresh, and gets even sweeter IMO as it ages. I tried an '09 120 at Freetail Ananke thanks to another BA, and I couldn't get past 2 oz.

    That's what I was thinking. This stuff is relatively easy to find and there's always a lot.

    Currently drinking the 60, 90, and 120 minute side by side. I agree the 120 is too sweet for me. Gonna be tough to finish this 12er but I aint no drain pourer... First time having the 60 and 90 too and really enjoy the 60 minute.

    I have a couple of these. I have tasted 2012 and 2013. These are very syrupy and sweet regardless of the age. The 18% ABV kinda kills the IPA taste though if you want to be completely honest. It is a nice "one off" beer that you can say you have had. However, if you are gonna drink it I recommend that you don't have shit to do later...lol! It tastes good, but it is way better when a 12oz is shared between 3-4 people. Honestly, 12oz at 18% is just too over the top to me, but that is just my opinion. It does taste good for the first 2oz and then the booze taste mixed with a lemon taste seems to overwhelm the rest of the beer. I haven't had it on tap though, so maybe I am missing out??

    Did my first 12oz of this beer in 2006. Then knocked back a DR2. Tried to drink a Samuel Smith's Nut Brown and couldn't. A buddy was over and we were playing Xbox and were so messed up it was hard to play video games. lol

    It's a hot mess, but age helps. It still holds a dear place in my heart since it was one of the first beers that made me feel hardcore about craft beer.

    I personally say hold off on drinking 120 minute for as long as possible - at least a year.

    I hate IPA's but 120 with over a year on it is actually pretty damned tasty.

    I'd rather drink 75 Minute or Burton Baton than 120. It's just a hot mess.

    BURTON BATON IS GOD

    j/k, but it is really really good. It's not even a horrible deal, but I have a haaaard time spending $16 on a 4-pack.

    ...eek. I haven't been beer-shopping lately. That's scary :(. I would totally buy BCBS at whatever price, though.
